Hannibal Buress Comedy Central Special Premieres This Month

05/04/2012
.
Comedy Central will feature Hannibal Buress in a original one-hour stand-up special, Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace, which premieres on Sunday, May 20 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

In his first hour-long special, Chicago-bred, New York-based Buress brings his celebrated deadpan wit to life's absurdities with stories of his three-cop jaywalking bust in Montreal, a bloodless airport shoot-out, and various late nights with questionable women. In front of a live audience at the Gramercy Theatre in New York, Buress re-imagines hardcore rappers as real estate agents, skewers grown men who can't hold their liquor, and, as an enterprising reporter actually wrote, performs "comedic jokes related to personal stories, current events, the streets, and even food."

The Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace extended and uncensored DVD, featuring 20 minutes of material not seen in the broadcast, will be released on May 22 by Comedy Central Home Entertainment. The bonus features include "A Week To Kill," a behind-the-scenes documentary that takes a look at how Buress spent the week before the filming of the comedy special. In addition, Comedy Central Records will release the extended and uncensored Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace CD on May 22.

Leading up to the on-air premiere, the Comedy Central Stand-Up website will feature preview clips from the special as well as excerpts from "A Week To Kill." Comedy Central Stand-Up's Facebook page also will have a special Facebook tab, spotlighting video clips from Buress and the comedians he follows on Twitter.

This June, Buress will headline Comedy Central Live Presents: Hannibal Buress, a free live outdoor show also featuring comedians Kevin Barnett and Josh Rabinowitz. Comedy Central Live Presents: Hannibal Buress takes place rain or shine on Sunday, June 24, at 7:00 pm ET at Red Hook Park in Brooklyn, NY.
